Author: Joseph Grigg Hymnal: Laudes Domini #409 (1888) Topics: Ashamed of Jesus First Line: Jesus, and shall it ever be Lyrics: 1 Jesus! and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of thee?
Ashamed of thee, whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine through endless days?
2 Ashamed of Jesus! sooner far
Let evening blush to own a star;
He sheds the beams of light divine
O'er this benighted soul of mine.
3 Ashamed of Jesus! that dear Friend
On whom my hopes of heaven depend!
No; when I blush, be this my shame,
That I no more revere his name.
4 Ashamed of Jesus! yes, I may,
When I've no guilt to wash away;
No tear to wipe, no good to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.
5 Till then--nor is my boasting vain--
Till then, I boast a Saviour slain!
And, oh, may this my glory be
That Christ is not ashamed of me! Scripture: Mark 8:38 Languages: English Tune Title: FEDERAL STREET
